My Father, William Sterling - Bryan Sterling

My father, William Sterling, was in a car accident on July 1. While being treated in the hospital it was discovered that my father had a giant basal cell carcanoma. Over the course of the next month he was tested and several difference diagnosis were made. Ultimately the doctors decided that surgery was the best option. He underwent a 28 hours surgery. During this time, the front of his skull, his left eye and a significant portion of the front of his brain were all found to be cancerous, and had to be removed. Three days after his surgery, he suffered a stroke in his brain stem. He passed away on August 12th. My father was 63.

William Boden Sterling, age 63 passed away peacefully on August 12, 2015. He was born February 2, 1952 in Pasadena, California. Bill attended Loyola High, received his BA in English from UCLA and his MA and Administrative Credential from Point Loma Nazarene College. He is survived by his best friend and partner of 44 years, Terry, an educator in BPUSD for 34 years; three sons, Bryan Sterling, Brett Sterling and Bryce Sterling. All three boys attended Baldwin Park Unified Schools. We cannot forget the countless extended family members from Baldwin Park and Glendale High Schools whose lives he touched. Bill taught at Baldwin Park High School from 1979 - 2007 then became an administrator in the Glendale Unified School District from 2007-2013.

He is missed and his death has left an incredible hole in my family's life. A memorial scholarship has been set up in his name.
